VFW Survey of Women Veterans

Help hold the VA accountable

The VFW is committed to ensuring veterans’ health care and benefits are equitable among the brave men and women who have worn our nation’s uniform.  In an effort to identify barriers women veterans face when accessing their earned veterans’ benefits and services, the VFW has commissioned a survey of women veterans that will guide the VFW’s policy priority goals for women veterans. The VFW will analyze survey results and direct feedback from women veterans to make recommendations to VA and Congress on how to meet the needs of women veterans.

Action Needed: Take the VFW’s Survey of Women Veterans to help the VFW hold VA accountable for delivering the high-quality benefits and services women veterans have earned and deserve. To take the survey, click here: https://www.research.net/r/VFWSurveyofWomenVeterans

   VFW National Legislative Service

The location of our Washington, D.C. office allows us to monitor all legislation affecting veterans, alert VFW membership to key legislation under consideration and to actively lobby Congress and the administration on veterans’ issues.

Everything we do on Capitol Hill is with the VFW’s priority goals and veterans’ well-being in mind. With the strength of the nearly 1.9 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries, our voice on “the Hill” cannot be ignored!

 WHAT WE DO:
The VFW’s National Legislative Service advocates on veterans’ behalves. By testifying at congressional committee hearings and interacting with congressional members, the VFW has played an instrumental role in nearly every piece of veterans’ legislation passed since the beginning of the 20th Century. The VFW’s most successful and important legislative push was to make college education affordable for military service members with the signing of the 1944 GI Bill of Rights, the Montgomery GI Bill in 1984, and the new Post-9/11 GI Bill in 2008
